Rihanna, Fig Trees and Mini Moke Car Rentals

What does the singer Rihanna, Mini Moke car rentals, and fig trees have in common?  The island nation of Barbados in the Caribbean.  Named "Los Barbados" (The Bearded Ones) by Portuguese explorer Pedro Campos due to the appearance of the long hanging roots on its fig trees, Barbados is a great destination for your next holiday by Mini Moke, or other less ridiculous car hire.

As we have been adding more and more countries to our Car Rental Locations section I have come across both countries which are very welcoming and easy for most holiday makers to plan a trip to, and countries which have several hoops for you to jump through before you ever pick up your car hire.  Those looking for a hassle-free trip to the Caribbean need look no further than Barbados.  No visa required, driving is on the left, and the food should have plenty of familiar options alongside more adventurous but not-too-foriegn flavors.  For the lowest rates on a car rental in Barbados book through

Why do I call the Mini Moke ridiculous?  Perhaps it does have its practical applications, plus since when does a car rental have to be practical?  I just find a short jeep that can't even clear large potholes to be a bit like a flying fish.  However, the Mini Moke, much like the flying fish, can be found all over Barbados and they both have their apparent demand, one being a cheap beach buggy and the other, well, dinner.  Though its early attempts at a military market were too ridiculous to fly, the Mini Moke is a popular island car rental with somewhat of a cult following.  Reserve your Mini Moke car hire from Grantley Adams Airport in Barbados.

As for Rihanna, Barbadians are quite proud to call the Grammy winning artist one of their own.  So much so that they celebrated Rihanna Day in 2008.
